I am a person who feels euphoria in nostalgia. In particular, I realized that the feelings I had when I was a child, the time when I felt more than I thought with my head, are very important now, and I am searching for a way of life that will bring me back to my childhood.

Drawing pictures and using my imagination to create characters was a lot of fun for me when I was a kid. When I look at myself in my mid-40s, I feel that my mind has hardened and my adventurous spirit has diminished. From here, I will return to my flexible childhood and challenge myself to create a worldview using my own art.

I would be very happy if my work could help someone, ease their mood, or make them smile.

Childhood full of experiences in nature.

Due to the influence of my mountain-loving father, I spent a lot of time in the mountains during my childhood. Especially in Niigata Prefecture, I was frequently taken to the remote and deep Kawuchi mountain range. I remember encountering a breathtaking scene of water that caught my eye in a place far from the mountain trails, where few people ventured. The sensations I experienced from nature at that moment have become the foundation of my creative pursuits today.

Influenced by Buddhism

Around 2008 to 2009, I went through the most difficult period in my life. In fact, I had been living my life like wandering through a maze since I was in junior high school, but the uncertainty of my direction reached its peak, and I had to seriously confront how I should live.

While spending time in the mountains, I immersed myself in spiritual, self-help, and religious books. Eventually, I realized that the essence of most of these books was expressed in modern language rooted in Buddhism. This sparked my interest in Buddhism, and as I repeatedly decluttered my inner self, I finally found the guiding principles for my path, which led me to where I am now.

As a holistic therapist

Influenced by Buddhism, I believed that my life’s mission was to pursue a healing profession, and after graduating from a school of holistic therapy and working as an apprentice under a teacher for a year, I established my own holistic therapy salon at home. Under the name “Bodhi Tree,” I worked as a holistic therapist for about five years until 2015. During this time, I also organized numerous events related to mental and physical well-being, such as yoga and counseling sessions.


In 2013, when I watched the documentary movie “EARTHLING,” and witnessed the brutal reality of the livestock industry, tears streamed down my face, and my body trembled uncontrollably. It was at that moment that I made the decision to pursue a vegan lifestyle. From that very day, I gave up eating meat, and six months later, I also stopped consuming fish, transitioning primarily to a vegetarian diet.

Future Goals

I will challenge myself to create original perspectives that encompass healing and philosophy, exploring both traditional Japanese and Western influences in two distinct domains.
